  •  Hollywood already screwing over this film (0+ / 0-)

    A group of my friends plan to see this movie this weekend but when I went to check the showtime listings, it was indicating that the film is only being shown at a few very remote theaters and none anywhere close to Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma.  I was shocked and it screams how Hollywood has a long way to go to get to the dream of MLK.

    •  Note that the movie starts tomorrow (0+ / 0-)

      I checked the local listing for my city just now and the schedule defaulted to today and thought that I had the same problem.  Then I noticed that the schedule was for today.  Clicking on tomorrow showed a whole different schedule and Red Tails was there.

    •  Some theaters don't update their listing until day (0+ / 0-)

      of release, even the ones for next week; some of these distribution agreements with the theaters can be remarkably last-minute.  I'd hold your fire on that until it's out and running.

      •  yes, more theaters came on line (0+ / 0-)

        at the last minute and I can now choose a theater near me.  So, I withdraw my "fire". :-)  

        But, I will still say that the promotion and marketing of this film as well as the very obvious resistance to the getting the film completed by the Hollywood community is very concerning.
